If you read my chronic illness wish list from earlier this year, you know that VIM & VIGR compression socks caught my eye a while back and have been on my mind ever since. I mean, compression socks that are comfortable, effective, and stylish? Yes, please! Luckily for me, their incredible team was kind enough to send along a pair of socks from their spring line—which leads us to my VIM & VIGR compression socks review!
About VIM & VIGR
VIM & VIGR is a brand that’s as committed to the fashion of its products as they are to the function. It all started when founder Michelle Huie began working at a job that required her to sit for long periods of time each day and she quickly realised what those of us with conditions like dysautonomia know all too well…that takes a toll on your legs!
She writes, “When I mentioned my new sedentary situation to a physical therapist, he recommended compression socks. The only options available were athletic or medical use socks and nothing reflected my style. This inspired me to start VIM & VIGR: a high-quality compression legwear line with stylish designs to be worn all day.”

Behind the scenes today, the quality of VIM & VIGR’s compression socks (and, I assume, their other products) remains a top priority. Partnering with a family-owned and -operated manufacturing company in Taiwan, each pair of VIM & VIGR compression socks takes 15 minutes to make and is made from custom-blended yarn using a method called “circular knitting.” Clearly, they’re doing something right!
VIM & VIGR Lemons Compression Socks REVIEW
The Lemons design caught my eye from the first time I spotted it. I’m fairly certain I sent a screenshot to my mom immediately gushing over the pattern. So, when the VIM & VIGR team reached out to offer a pair of their compression socks, the lemons were my number one pick.
They came through with just that and I truly couldn’t be happier with the end result! The aqua background shade is absolutely beautiful, and the lemon print is such a fun contrast. The light colour is pretty easy to get dirty. But, because these are made from cotton, a bit of stain remover gets them looking like new again.
Most importantly, though, these compression socks work! I feel so much better when I’m wearing these, with improved circulation in my legs (no more icy cold toes!) and a bit less lightheadedness, too. My painfully sensitive skin can even wear them all day with minimal reaction—a huge upgrade from my previous compressionwear.
Of course, they look great, too! I’ve even set aside some funds to shop VIM & VIGR’s latest sale and pick up a few more pairs. I obviously need to build a collection of at least one pair for every day of the week, right?
In short, I’m absolutely in love with these fun compression socks and am so grateful to VIM & VIGR for sending this pair along. They’ve already made such a difference in my day-to-day comfort and I’m excited to explore more of their offerings from this point forward.
